, at the present miss player maureen conley became the first woman to win all four major grand slam tournaments in the same year. conley was just 18 years old at the time. she started the season with a win at the australian open over julie sampson but in the next three tournament finals she faced the same opponent each time doris hart. that day at the u.s. open right here in new york, the quick footed conley made short work of her competition. in fact, little mo took the title in just 4 minutes. unfortunately a horse riding accident the following year cut her career short at just 19 years old. she never played professionally again. but a teenager took the tennis world by storm 57 years ago today.
